Potessi unire

Standard

potessi unire
i pensieri sparsi

per colore e sfumature
avvertendone la
forma sotto le dita

arrangiandoli
in un mosaico

An Upside Down World

Standard

*

tonight
the moon is full

emptied from a thousand
engagements I lay in hot
water maybe illuminated

from the sky the silence
repose approaching
hidden from light

an upside down world
a somersault and a wriggle to

find myself wondering star under
inside some lights I turn off
before the thoughts – then the eyes

slightly vibrating
weightless in the space
I found within

Incrinarsi

Standard

December Sundays are dedicated to Italian Poetry.

*

esserci
un giorno

dove il suono delle
ali delle farfalle

può essere ascoltato
disteso su un sorriso

vigile ai mutamenti
del mio corpo

stupore della gratitudine
mi incrino un poco

alla volta a vita
più profonda

Love Is Reverence

Standard

*

I have worn shoes
covered with trails

dust sticking loud
louder than my long

path of silence I
have asked to see

the way I could tread
barefoot as in a dream

where roads aren’t
hard where people

say without speaking
love is reverence

.

.

.

L’esordio

Standard

*

mettiti sempre
al principio delle cose

mantieni quell’intenzione
come bussola della tua vita

non sei mai alla fine
non sarà mai

la fine del mondo
ma per noi sempre

l’esordio di ogni
nuova cosa

.

Mattina

Standard

November Sundays are dedicated to Italian Poetry.

*

è la tenerezza
del cielo
che depone il suo velo

su di me
la mattina che mi
apre gli occhi

riconoscenza
barlumi d’amore
che occhieggiano

come le piccole goccie

abbandonate dopo
la pioggia sul capino
dei fili d’erba

Attendo

Standard

November Sundays are dedicated to Italian Poetry.

*
attendo che questa
poesia mi crolli addosso
come una cascata

che porti via un sudore
inutile che riempia
di frescura la mia gola

assetata di armonia
che tessono poco
queste mie mani

.

Quietly Attending

Standard

*

if my life
could be spent

under the shade
of a wild mushroom

quietly attending
daily tasks nurturing

souls expecting
the murmurs

of death approaching
as the wind between

the foliage above

Ho visto la pioggia

Standard

November Sundays are dedicated to Italian Poetry.

*

ho visto la pioggia

camminare sul mare
bussava senza sosta

incapace di scavare
buchi antichi

come nelle rocce
perché era

accolta
era ben accolta

A River Pouring

Standard

*
a river pouring
you are not rushing

.
to me poetry flows
out is hard to contain

.
I’ve no hands for that use
I’ve new eyes to embrace

.
strong legs clasped around
it’s an odd place wonderful

.
to be tell me what is
new today with you

Autunno

Standard

October Sundays are dedicated to Italian Poetry.

*

esclamare i propri
sentimenti quando
i giorni si confondono

come gli amanti sognati
come i passi contati
fosse una questione

di singolo o plurale
fosse solo la vocale
finale

una sillabazione invece
una ricerca d’accento
sulle giornate meste

The Beauty We Hold

Standard

*

it’s the beauty we hold
and carelessly wear around
what we’ll be missing more

I’ve been that route

bumps holes and crevices
known to me if you’ll let me
stop the nonsense and hold
dear what we have

Risalire

posso risalire
senza scivolare

non è ansia ma
parola attenta

precisa nel suono
e nello spazio
mi ferma una mano

Truth

Standard

*

if you do respond

to light innuendos
if you do understand
the spaces within

and the white around
if you say a lot with
your silences then

poetry is light and
simplicity – it’s a gentle
laugh at the scoffing

of the learned – it’s
what lifts you up –
not what shows off

.

Senza tempo

Standard

October Sundays are dedicated to Italian Poetry.

*

essere senza tempo
così mi sento

impazzisco dentro
i legami forti
di accordi non miei

necessari dicono
perché ci si incontri
perché accada qualcosa

vorrei tornare al tutto
compreso dentro me
vorrei avere il nulla

come ricchezza
conoscere davvero
prima del tic e dopo

il tac noi si girava
comunque intorno
al sole noi si parlava

anche con Dio

California Notebooks – Trust

Standard

driving in the dark

surrounded by fog

better use trust
the season has come

plowing the clouds

to unveil the land
suspended in

to everlasting

radiance

Perhaps From The California Notebooks 02

Standard

*

perhaps I live eternally
beyond the world’s borders
without realizing

those limits useless talks
and mean chit-chats
laid out as spider webs

perhaps I fly protected

in the blinding light
and at night I cry
cause I did not grasp it

Light From The California Notebooks 02

approaching the day
with dancing
thoughts

to linger in god’s
presence
light

that stays with me
at night
and in my slumber

California Notebooks – Freedom

Standard

*
I realize we
do not need more
cosmic abstractions

nor painful flights
to the Himalayas tip
for the misty fog

that sometimes
surrounds us in
a cage of boredom

to wane at the sound
of us being liberated
as we simply focus

on what we know
now that we didn’t
know last week

.

Measures from The London Hours

Standard

*

something to do with measures
unknown
to others the length
of my despair whether is
it by nature, mine
or a not understanding of facts

of the jokes
among men, their secret bets
their sudden shoulders

and all was lived
and built, all that had an essence

to dust them off
to cough them up
it’s all forgotten
at once.

I don’t seem
to understand other’s
measures, the sense of
their steps, it’s long
far from me.

Joyful Exile from The London Hours

Standard

*
routine is good
a shelter to my heart

a time of secret
tenderness

went to swim in the morning
new beauty welcomed me

piercing the sound
underwater

large the company
joyful exile

Un volo oltre

Standard

*

nostalgia dei primi
odori americani
.
di teli bianchi perfetti
mossi da un lieve vento
.
noi a ridere nudi
a raccontarci la vita
.
appena iniziata
insieme, non sapevamo quanto

Running Uphill from The London Hours

Standard

*
I will close this page
and put it away

I will have a look
at such light
lingering

I will stand eventually

get up and displace
myself in a busy store
drunk in sounds and souls

I will pick you up
later when this
wind ceases

one more time
running uphill
